I am so excited on how nice I looked today in my NEW SEXY BLACK dress. I guess I do clean up good...LOL Would have NEVER even thought about wearing something this short and form fitting before.
My ego was fed by all the members of my church; as they continued to tell me how nice and thin I looked in my new dress. Even my husband gave me a whistle, as I stepped out of the bedroom, after getting dressed.
Looking at my before and after picture has helped me with my struggle in seeing the new me. I can hear it over and over, but in my mind I still see myself as a size 22. I don't know if you have that same problem, but I understand that it is normal. So taking pictures of myself has in a small way helped me see that I am getting smaller.
This was last summer. It is really hard for me to find a before picture at my heaviest (220) because I never liked my picture taken. And if some rare chance I was willing, it was always just a face shot. But most of the time I was the one who was taking the pictures, that way it was safe for me.
This was taking after I lost my first 20 pounds. See lots of layers and always trying to hide under a jacket. But not anymore!
Sorry if my posting is boring to my readers but I will be printing this blog and saving it as a book. So I can always remember my journey with losing the weight.
